Publish, Export And Comment Reports

When you are finished designing your report, you can publish it to your Power BI workspace. You also have options to export to Microsoft Excel.

Publish Reports

When you publish a report, Power BI Desktop packages your report and data, including all your visualisations, queries, and custom measures, and then uploads them to Power BI service.

To publish your report, select the Publish button on the Home tab.

You might be prompted to save your changes, in which case, select Save and then proceed to save your Power BI (.pbix) file. You might also be required to sign in to Power BI. If so, enter your sign-in credentials to continue.

Export Reports

Power BI allows you to export visual data, reports, and datasets. You can export to several different formats including CSV, Excel, and PDF.

Comment on Reports

When you publish your report to Power BI web service, the consumers of your report can add comments to it. Comments can be useful for personal comments or for starting a conversation about a report item with your colleagues.
